The National Endowment for the Arts Big Read grant awarded to Spearfish enabled us to do a monthly free community art project. Each project’s theme tied into our community read book, “The Namesake” by Jhumpa Lahiri. We’ve added a few photos just below with some of the completed birds.
This last project, on Tuesday, April 8, “Struttin’ like Peacocks,” was the creation of peacock fans with decorative papers, markers, glue, and scissors. We had a great turnout. Maybe it was good because of the beautiful spring weather, but we’re going to put it down as a fantastic subject and great people that made it so successful.
